Africa - Famine Relief

The Archdiocese of Toronto joins the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and faith communities across Canada in launching a joint appeal, entitled Pray-Give-Speak, in response to desperate food crises in South Sudan, Yemen, Nigeria and Somalia.

The United Nations has confirmed that South Sudan has 100,000 people in famine conditions. Reports suggest a total of 20 million people are on the brink of starvation in the region. A declaration of famine has not been made by UN agencies since July 2011 when some 260,000 people died in Somalia – half of them children under the age of five. The world must not let those horrors be repeated.

Those wishing to help through a financial contribution may do so in the following ways:
